Brothers Sullivan

Sullivan's Island.  Charleston, South Carolina, USA.
These are five random images taken on this serene beach a few weeks ago.  As I sat here tonight looking over them I remembered a story from my Navy days... "The Brothers Sullivan."  Their namesake unrelated to this island.  The story is a powerful image... more than some random photographs.

The story starts..."The five Sullivan brothers enlisted on January 3, 1942 with the stipulation that they serve together..."  

The story ends... "The Sullivan brothers were all killed in action during or shortly after the sinking of the light cruiser USS Juneau, the vessel in which they all served, on 13 November 1942 in World War II."

Please find the time to read over this one time.


  1. Hey everybody. It's ok. You can enjoy the photographs just for what they are. My mind wandered one of those six degrees things and I ended up thinking of these brothers. Just a story to share. I hope you just the same like the beach collection of images.

  2. I like your composition, five pictures show me how it is like!
